Qualcomm talks about how to create the best "recipe" for wearables

Wearable devices are a natural extension of mobile devices. Through the connection with smartphones and the cloud, we connect the surrounding environment around us to shape a forward-looking future that connects all things and communicates with each other. In order to meet the diverse needs and applications of the market, the design of wearable devices should be tailored to suit the "tasting" of the market to create a delicious "dish" to cater to the "taste" of the market. Therefore, in the process of searching for "food ingredients," we must balance the principles of "small but beautiful" and "small and provincial".

Next, let the general manager in this field expose the successful recipes for wearable devices.

Wear technology needs from a mobile device perspective

Pankaj Kedia, senior director of Qualcomm Technologies, gave a speech on the theme of "Recipe for a Successful Wearable Device". He used the company's years of experience in the field of mobile devices to illustrate its wearable technology. Vision and development blueprint.

Pankaj Kedia, Senior Director, Qualcomm Technologies, USA.

In the beginning, he said that the current smart phone is already the most personal and powerful device among our portable technology products. In the United States, an average of about 106 Android apps are available every day. 75% of users aged 18 to 24 will use it immediately when they get up. About 94% of users will use it to check local information (news, weather, traffic, etc.). About 79% will be used to watch the film.

For the vision of wearable technology, Qualcomm believes that smart phones are the backbone of personal portable accessories and information. They can connect to the cloud for information access, and can also connect wearable devices (such as wristbands and watches through BT/NFC, etc.). , shoes, glasses, headphones, clothing), become a relay station for wearable devices. The wearable device itself can also be designed to connect directly to the cloud through 3G/4G/Wi-Fi, etc., so Pankaj believes that the future devices are connected to each other and can communicate with each other.

Wearable growth outbreak design varies by demand

Pankaj pointed out that the market for wearable products is growing rapidly, with shipments exceeding 200 million units (IHS data) in 2018, with smart watches being one of the highest growth rates (GAGR 170%). Applications for the top 3 wearable products include communications, fitness and health, and healthcare. The design of the product will have different shapes and sizes depending on the application.

He depicts the industry in four quadrants, where the horizontal axis represents connectivity and the vertical axis represents functional use. In the first quadrant, it is the "high-end smart product" with the most connection and function use, such as built-in Wi-Fi/BT (Bluetooth)/BLE (Low-Power Bluetooth), and even the wisdom of connection capabilities such as 3G/4G. Watch or eyewear product (classified as Type 2). The third quadrant is a "basic functional product" with a simple connection and use. It may only have BT/BLE connectivity, such as sports watches, bracelets, and smart clothes (classified as Type 1).

For Type 1 devices, the main purpose is to use long-term sensing and single-use operation throughout the day. Real-TIme operaTIng system (RTOS) is like Embedded Linux, ThreadX, etc., consumers expect it. Battery life can reach 7 days; Type 2 equipment is about high efficiency, rich user experience, mostly using high-level operating system (HLOS) such as Android Wear, TIzen, etc., consumers The usage habits should be charged every day.

To this end, Qualcomm offers a variety of "food ingredients" and "condiments" for wearable devices, allowing system operators to select the appropriate "recipes" to demonstrate successful culinary skills:

A. Connection technology: Qualcomm has 3G, 4G LTE, 4G LTE Advanced, Bluetooth 4.0/LE, NFC, GPS (Qualcomm IZatTM indoor positioning technology), Wi-Fi (Qualcomm VIVETM 802.11ac wireless technology).

B. IoT Agreement: There is the AllJoyn Open Platform (AllSeen Alliance).

C. Interface components: low power consumption, virtual all-weather boot, color touch screen (Qualcomm Mirasol display), Pixtronix display technology.

D. Processor: A low-power, high-performance custom ARM CPU, a customizable, low-power DSP engine, and an integrated sensor engine for 24/7 boot.

E. Power components: Provide wireless charging (Qualcomm WiPowerTM wireless charging technology).

F. Multimedia unit: has a hardware image acceleration engine, low-power sound effects and voice processing.

G. Drawing unit: Qualcomm's own Adreno GPU, display processing engine, etc.

H. Wireless Health Services: There is a cross-platform cloud information management system: 2net platform.

A variety of ingredients and condiments are planned for wearable device recipes

Since Qualcomm has so many rich ingredients and ingredients, how do you compile successful personal wearable recipes? First of all, it is cool in terms of styling, and at the same time, it must be enriched in functions. It includes: 1. Light and fashionable; 2. Ultra-long power; 3. Connect at any time; 4. Turn on and feel around the clock. This is achieved by designing components optimized for wearable devices.

In the first part, Qualcomm offers highly integrated SoCs (such as Type 2 performance + multimedia + wireless connectivity, and Type 1 signal processing + wireless connectivity), and uses an innovative ePoP package to accurately control wafer distribution around the clock. Heat to the body can withstand the temperature.

The second part uses a low-power architecture processor, display, and active power management technology to increase the number of days of use, and with its own WiPower wireless charging and Quick Charge 2.0 fast charging technology to significantly reduce charging time.

Part 3 can interconnect devices via BT/BLE, interconnect with mobile phones via BT/BLE and NFC, or connect to personal clouds via Wi-Fi or 3G/4G. The fourth part is to connect various sensing devices to meet the all-weather sensing needs in the fields of environment, navigation, content output/input, health and fitness.

Wear the market is right, enter it now. Because technology is changing with each passing day, many companies have entered the market and launched the first generation of wearable products, which has aroused high interest among consumers. Qualcomm plays a leading role in this industry, providing advanced design and development technologies, and building a good ecosystem with the industry over the years, so it can help customers quickly introduce and accelerate the huge business opportunities of the wearable industry.

Finally, Pankaj concluded that wearable devices will be an important event in the development of the industry. The topic of shape and size will continue to be valued, so it is imperative to use the necessary components to develop a successful product. Qualcomm provides optimized performance components and advanced technologies, and will help customers develop successful wearable products with features such as light and stylish, ultra-long power, ready-to-wire, all-weather boot, induction, and reception.
